Coach Brittany’s Soccer Agility Drills Series

Coach Brittany from the Champion’s QUEST Soccer Academy shows a simple way to use Agility Rings with Soccer Players off the field. No cleats or ball needed, just 4 Agility Rings and Soccer Players.

Start off with a focus on movements going forward/backward and side to side in a slow, controlled manner. As the athlete gets better at those movements, then move on to diagonal movements to increase the change of direction. As the athlete gets used to the new direction, add in plyometric vertical jumps, horizontal “broad” jumps, and speed. The possibilities are endless with these drills.

Coaching Cues: 1) Start slow and controlled to make sure their balance and technique is there.

2) Make sure the athlete completes one motion before moving onto the next.

3) As the difficulty and speed increases, continue to focus on technique!
